RTX 2017 – Booth 401

We’re headed back to Austin, Texas for our 5th time exhibiting at Rooster Teeth Expo (RTX)! You’ll be able to find us at RTX 2017 Booth 401 (next to our friends, Supergiant Games) from July 7 to July 9 and we’re going to have lots of new stuff this year.

Arcade

Our custom-built arcade cabinets are returning with us. Come play Pit People, BattleBlock Theater, and Back Off Barbarian! We’ll also have brand new 2-player Pit People arcade cabinets to play!! These arcade cabinets are built by our hands for your hands!!!

All the demos at RTX are free to play as always. <3

Store


We’ll have official merchandise at our Gift Shop, including blind-boxed capsules in our Chonku Chonku machine! For $5, you’ll be able to get a token to place into the machine and it will pop out a capsule with either Behemoth Pins (new assortment pictured above) or one of the Castle Crashers mini-figurines! The Behemoth pins are new to Earth (first time ever!) and there will be 5 random pins in each capsule. (What a steal!)

There will also be 3 Pit People t-shirt designs (XS – 2XL) and Pit People plushies for sale. Tees are $20 each and Plushies are $25 each.

Everything is available while supplies last since we can only ship so much over from San Diego. Get there early to buy some official Behemoth merch!

Daily Pit People Tournaments

RTX attendees looking for some Pit People competition will be rewarded with our brand new competitive Pit People cabinets. Come by our booth and challenge a fellow attendee for a chance to win some STUFF!

(Details on “stuff” and how to enter will follow in a future post)

Pit People VO Spotlight: Ashly Burch

(See the introduction of the full Pit People VO Cast in “The Voices of Pit People)

Generally speaking I like to give any creative person I’m working with a good amount of ‘room’. It creates the opportunity for the artist to breathe a lot of their own life into whatever they are doing. With Ashly, my approach remained the same. It’s always fun seeing someone knock stuff out of the park!

I went in very confident as I’ve known Ashly for years now and was certain she’d be able to nail the roles. The spectrum of characters we requested from her was pretty wide – there’s our iconic Recruitador Sofia, who wants to confidently claim everything on the planet for Spain in the gibberish form of the Spanish language. Then we have things like semi-creepy Spidaur ladies or partially insane Vampiresses. Then we have Hailey who has just the perfect amount of sass and tough love mixed together. I really couldn’t be happier.

There’s one recording Ashly made in particular that always makes me smirk a little when giving a female human a destination on the grid: “Ayyyyyyyyy..”
